Tarot For Lunch – Lessons From The Cards

I once taught a daytime Tarot class that seemed to turn into a lunch hour diversion for several of my students. In the process of preparing for this class I drew on my years of research and study of the Tarot and began to develop some interesting ways to explain the meanings of the cards. I am always more intrigued by the process of forming the right question than the relentless search for answers. It is with this inquisitive nature that I approached teaching The Tarot. So grab your favorite deck and bring your best questions and be prepared to question everything as we explore The Tarot, it’s what’s for lunch.


22 Teachers – Healing Lessons From The Major Arcana

This book is a personal visit with each of the 22 Major Arcana cards The Tarot. The energy and personality of each card comes through as a healing energy and a guide to every aspect of life. 22 Teachers – Healing Lessons From The Major Arcana is a guide to understanding and getting the greatest benefit from your favorite Tarot deck.

Evil Archaeology With Dr. Heather Lynn – 01/29/2020

Dr. Heather Lynn is an author, historian, and renegade archaeologist, and she has graciously agreed to be our guest this evening!

7:00 pm Pacific, 9:00 pm Central, 10:00 pm Eastern!

Click for Event on Facebook



Dr. Heather Lynn

Author, Historian, ​& Renegade Archaeologist

Dr. Heather Lynn is an author, historian, and renegade archaeologist, on a quest to uncover the truth behind ancient mysteries. She holds numerous degrees and certificates in both history and archaeology and is a member of professional organizations, including: the American Historical Association, the Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA), Association of Ancient Historians, and the World Archaeological Congress.

She left a life in academia to pursue her fascination with the unexplained and now investigates ancient mysteries, lost civilizations, hidden history, ancient aliens, and the occult. Heather’s work exposes our hidden history, challenging the accepted narrative found in mainstream history books. In addition to appearances on radio programs like Coast to Coast AM and Fade to Black, Heather has been a historical consultant for television programs, including History’s Ancient Aliens. For more information, visit: www.drheatherlynn.com

In her spare time, she plays the French horn in a local symphony orchestra whose performances raise money to provide art and cultural education to low-income communities. She loves tennis, classical music, and a good cup of tea. 




EVIL ARCHAEOLOGY

Demons, jinn, possession, sinister artifacts, and gruesome archaeological discoveries haunt the pages of the new book by Dr. Heather Lynn. Evil Archaeology investigates the archaeological record for artifacts and evidence of evil entities, revealing how demons from the ancient world may be dwelling among us. It also looks at the history and lore behind real relics, believed to be haunted, and includes historical accounts of demonic possession, as far back as ancient Mesopotamia, and tells of how King Solomon invoked demons to help him build his famed Temple.

Is there really a prehistoric fertility goddess figure that has been known to bring death to the families of anyone who holds it? Are there real vampire graveyards? Can the archaeological record prove the existence of demons and malevolent entities?

Some tantalizing questions Evil Archaeology addresses include:

  • What is the origin of demons?
  • What role did Sumerian demons play in the development of civilization?
  • Are curses real? Can material objects contain evil? What about places?
  • What can we do to protect ourselves, according to historical records?
  • Was Jesus an exorcist?

If this sounds all too disturbing, try not to worry. Evil Archaeology also includes ways to protect yourself and loved ones against malevolent forces, as well as practical advice from experienced exorcists and demonologists.


The Annunaki Connection

Available March 1st, 2020

Connects a diverse range of new and existing theories about the Anunnaki, offering a definitive guide to the Anunnaki while exploring their possible connection to humanity’s past, present, and future.

Over 6,000 years ago, the world’s first civilization, the Sumerians, were recording stories of strange celestial gods who they believed came from the heavens to create mankind. These gods, known as the Anunnaki, are often neglected by mainstream historians. The Sumerians themselves are so puzzling; scholars have described their origin as “The Sumerian Problem.”

With so little taught about the ancient Sumerians in our history books, alternative theories have emerged. This has led many to wonder, What is the true story behind the Sumerians and their otherworldly gods, the Anunnaki?

In The Anunnaki Connection, Heather Lynn connects a diverse range of new and existing theories about the Anunnaki, offering a definitive guide to Mesopotamian gods while exploring what role they might have played in engineering mankind. The Anunnaki Connection traces the evolution of gods throughout the Ancient Near East, analyzing the religion, myth, art, and symbolism of the Sumerians, investigating:

  • Who are the Anunnaki?
  • How accurate are the current Sumerian text translations, and how do we know for sure who to believe?
  • Is there a connection between the Anunnaki and other ancient gods? What about demons?
  • Where are the Anunnaki now? Will their possible return spell the end of our world?​

Digging Deeper Show

Digging Deeper, explores a variety of thought-provoking and unusual subjects including history, archaeology, the occult, Gnosticism, paranormal phenomena, extraterrestrials, conspiracy theories, Illuminati, and more.

Part story-telling, part lecture; Digging Deeper challenges you to go beyond the accepted narrative to push the boundaries of what you think you know. Using legitimate academic sources, Dr. Heather Lynn builds a solid framework to support her claims and encourages listeners to dig deeper to uncover hidden truths and obscure knowledge.

Eerie Haunted Talk With Todd Bates And David Weatherly – 01/08/2020

It’s going to be a full night of Paranormal/Supernatural Conversation!

In the first hour we’ll talk to returning Haunted Voices Radio host Todd Bates about his work with paranormal investigations and extensive background with EVPs..
The second hour brings the highly accomplished David Weatherly to the show! We’ll talk about his more recent books, travels and adventures..


Todd’s Bio:
Chances are you’ll find him in a mysterious abandoned home, walls yellowed by age and doors teetering precariously on their hinges. Maybe a murder occurred or perhaps a fire. Whatever the case, Todd Bates is on the scene for a singular task: listening for voices of the dead.


Electronic Voice Phenomenon (commonly referred to as “EVP”) is spirit voices captured on a digital or analog recording device that were not heard with the naked ear at the time of their recording. For Todd, collecting this specialized evidence of paranormal origin is a life calling. After years of personally investigating the mysteries of EVP and studying under a pioneering figure in the field, Sarah Estep, he took his passion to the Internet. Now in its 13th year, HauntedVoices.com has quickly grown to be one of the most successful Electronic Voice Phenomenon-based websites on the Internet dedicated to research, education and discussion. The site is also the home to the Haunted Voices Radio. The network of live & archived programs provide audio material 24 hours a day and Todd acts as program director and its flagship talk show host.
Todd has collected some of the most impressive examples of the phenomenon available today and currently teaches his capturing techniques and paranormal investigation protocol via private and on-air lessons.

Jeff Davis: A Longer, Somewhat Boring Biography

Jefferson Davis

Jeff Davis was born in Vancouver, Washington and grew up in the Army, so to speak. Jeff’s father was stationed at the Vancouver Barracks and Jeff grew up playing in and around the barracks. This led to his interest in a military career. This competed with his other interests, ghosts, mythology, and archaeology, which began when he spent many evenings watching old horror movies, such as the original Mummy with Boris Karloff.

Ghosts and Critters Career

Jeff was interested in the paranormal since childhood, but because of job and military commitments, was limited to short investigations and research projects. However, in the late 1990s, during a lull in work and military assignments, Jeff published his first book, Ghosts and Strange Critters of the Pacific Northwest. He wrote this book, and his later manuscripts with a focus on the historical context of hauntings, the who, what, where, and WHY a location might be haunted. Because of his anthropology background, and a natural suspicion of the government, Jeff was also interested in mysteries and conspiracy theories, strange animals, and forgotten facts. He included those in his books as well.

Jeff has written, edited, or contributed to over a dozen books on military history, and the paranormal. Some of these books include, Weird Washington, Weird Oregon, A Haunted Tour Guide to the Pacific Northwest, Ghosts, Critters and Sacred Place of Washington and Oregon, Volumes I – III, and many others. He has been a guest on Coast to Coast AM; and, the History Channel series, Haunted History.

During Season 16, on all four Saturdays of October, 2018, the Ghost Adventures show aired a four-part mini series filmed in and around Astoria, Oregon. Behind the scenes, Jeff helped located venues and witnesses for each episode. He appeared in two of the episodes as a historic consultant.

Zak and the crew conclude their investigation of the Graveyard of the Pacific with a visit to Washington State, where they explore a lighthouse that bore witness to some of the most tragic shipwrecks on the Pacific Coast.

Military Career

While still in high school, Jeff joined the US Army Reserves and spent 32 years in the US Army and Army Reserves. He started off as a private in the infantry and went on to serve three years on active duty. He spent 18 months in Italy, where he helped guard nuclear weapons and the other 18 months at Ft. Lewis, WA, where he served with the 9th Infantry Division. While there, his less pleasant job was as the gunner of a 90mm recoilless rifle. After his three-year hitch, Jeff went to college, went through ROTC, and received a commission along with his Bachelor’s degree.

Jeff ‘branched’ military intelligence and served with several units in the National Guard and Army Reserves. He went on overseas training missions to Japan and Korea, and eventually was mobilized and sent to Bosnia. In Bosnia, he served as a Civil Affairs officer. His most worthwhile duty was organizing a troop of soldiers who volunteered to put on puppet shows for Bosnian orphans in their off-duty hours.

After Bosnia, Jeff received assignments as a military historian. After September 11th, he was mobilized twice as a military historian. He spent most of this time in Southwest Asia and Florida. His duties included conducting interviews with Special Operations forces and writing reports on their actions. After his mobilizations, Jeff became historian for the 104th Division, of the Army Reserves, and unofficial army historian for the Vancouver Barracks. He eventually retired with the rank of Major after 32 years of military service.

Archaeology and Historic Preservation Career

Jeff received a BS in Anthropology from Portland State University, in Portland, Oregon. Between Army and Army Reserve work, Jeff worked for several years as an archaeologist. He worked at the Mt. St. Helen’s National Volcanic Monument, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Mt. Hood National Forest, Umatilla National Forest, and Boise National Forest.

In the 1990s, Jeff lived in England for nearly a year while he studied archaeology at the University of Sheffield. He eventually received a MA in Archaeology and Prehistory, after completing his thesis on the Vikings in Greenland.

Following his several mobilizations during the global war on terrorism, Jeff did not return to archaeology as a full-time job. Instead, he concentrated on the military history and heritage of the Vancouver Barracks and the Pacific Northwest. He and others formed the Vancouver Barracks Military Association (VBMA). Jeff combines his love of military history, the Vancouver Barracks, and the paranormal by giving regular Spirit Tours of the Vancouver Barracks.

MMC Presents ‘A Guide To Holiday Horror Movies’ | Nov. 27, 2019


Kim Douthit

This Thanksgiving Eve, we thought we’d keep it light, fun and simple as so many will be gearing up for a delightful, or not, family and/or friends celebration, with the following day being a maelstrom of frantic shoppers looking for ‘the deal of the century’.


Horror maven Kim Douthit has agreed to join in the shenanigans and talk about some of her favorite holiday horror movies and chime in on our hosts’ lists as well..

So please join us in either of the chat areas and possibly engage in a game of ‘stump the horror experts’ too. It promises to be a ghastly good time!


A few of the movies that will probably be talked about:

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)

A young boy named Pietari (Onni Tommila) and his friend Juuso (Ilmari Järvenpää) think a secret mountain drilling project near their home in northern Finland has uncovered the tomb of Santa Claus. However, this a monstrous, evil Santa, much unlike the cheery St. Nick of legend.


Black Christmas

As winter break begins, a group of sorority sisters, including Jess (Olivia Hussey) and the often inebriated Barb (Margot Kidder), begin to receive anonymous, lascivious phone calls. Initially, Barb eggs the caller on, but stops when he responds threateningly. Soon, Barb’s friend Claire (Lynne Griffin) goes missing from the sorority house, and a local adolescent girl is murdered, leading the girls to suspect a serial killer is on the loose. But no one realizes just how near the culprit is.

Note: The film has a 2006 remake and a re-imagining for 2019.


A Christmas Horror Story

Not even Santa Claus is safe from the evil that descends on Bailey Downs, a small town that is suddenly plagued with malevolent spirits, zombie elves and Krampus — the anti-Santa Claus.


These are just a few that will be covered. Join us for a more complete guide!
